May 31, 1975. My friends and I loaded up and headed to A-Basin to help shut it down for the season. It was snowing moderately most of the way up, but the roads were only semi-slimey. We got there and unloaded our stuff and went into the lodge for a few minutes to assess the weather.
It was snowing hard in the parking lot, but up on the mountain it was pure white-out. After about 30 minutes some employees came around and told the couple dozen or so die-hards present that the lifts would not be opening today. We loaded up and headed home.
We got to observe a tow truck fetching a State Patrol car out of the ditch on westbound I-70. That was the highlight of our day.
Couldn't ski on May 31 because of too much snow.
